STUDY: 22% OF USA MILLENNIALS NEVER HEARD OF THE HOLOCAUST:Posted on
Over a fifth of millennials in the United States have not heard of the Holocaust, a study found. The survey, which was commissioned by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany found that many Americans were unaware of basic facts about the Holocaust. The results were released Thurs. 12 April 2018, which marks Yom Hashoah, or Holocaust Remembrance Day. The study included 1,350 interviews with Americans aged 18 and over. While 6 million Jews are estimated killed in the Holocaust, 31% of all respondents and 41% of millennials, aged 18 to 34, believe that number is 2 million or less, according to the survey. Forty-five percent of all respondents could not name a concentration camp or ghetto from World War II, and 41% could not identify Auschwitz; a network of Nazi concentration and extermination camps. Claims Conference President Julius Berman expressed concern about the lack of knowledge about the Holocaust among millennials. "We are alarmed that today’s generation lacks some of the basic knowledge about these atrocities,” he said in a statement.
